> In the Javadoc for TableSnapshotInputFormat, we have this:
> {quote}
> HBase also enforces security because all the requests are handled by the server layer,
and the user cannot read from the data files directly.
> {quote}
> The snapshot input format operates on HFiles directly, that's how it gains its performance
benefits. No requests are handled by the 'server layer'.
> Later the Javadoc correctly states the implications:
> {quote}
> Note that, given other users access to read from snapshot/data files will completely
circumvent the access control enforced by HBase.
